Location

London is the capital of the United Kingdom, situated in the South East of the island. The world's largest financial centre, London is also often referred to the culture capital of the world. The city is well-known for its heritage, including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, and the historic settlement of Greenwich. London Underground is the oldest urban railway network in the world.

Technology workers in London earn 60pc more than the city average, with the figure even higher for foreign born workers, who earned 28pc more than their British counterparts in tech jobs. London can be considered as a center for professional relocation. Furthermore, there are over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies' headquarters in London.

The city is famous for unpredictable weather. For instance, it could be cold, warm and rainy in one day and it’s often the topic of conversation across the city.

  • 2.5M people, one third of Londoners, are foreign born
  • 40% of Greater London is green space
  • 10-49

We’re shaking up the traditional insurance industry by helping millions of young people plan for their financial future – starting with providing a safety net for their home lives. We might work in financial services, but we think about ourselves as a tech company, and a consumer brand that people can trust.
